*Wouldn't buy a dual core... get a 3700+ instead
*Wouldn't buy the SLI mobo cuz it limits u upgrading in the future. Get a DFI Lanparty Ultra-d instead.
*Big typhoon is a better cooler than zalman

these are my thoughts, do whatever is best for u...
The Antec one is 50$ more or so hehe NOOO (although I took your word and added it). I still am going to defend the dual proccesor here because eventually it will out-class the 3700 (and I really don't think the Dual will be any worse then the 3700). Then, I have the DFI Lanparty in there now too so WootZ! and the cooler, I'll do my final decision two minutes before I buy it, but it seems you guys like the typhoon much better, so thats what I am going with fer now

That case looks just fine, but a question, should I get another fan with it if I got this one?
Get the one that doesn't have a window. It includes a CPU duct which will allow you to run a wee bit cooler. Also, you can always mod it to install your own window. The fans included are very nice. They move quite a bit of air considering their rated CFM and power.

Umm...i would go with Sunbeam NUUO.....the 550w is roughly 80 USD....

I personally like ASUS Motherboards....especially if it is your first build. You wouldn;t want to get yourself in over your head settign things you have no idea what they do (not to say your an idiot or anything)....i would go with the a8n-sli deluxe though, not a premium. I just don't think the DFI is good for a new builder.

Ignorance of the future buys a single over a dula core nowadays, especially with vista on the horizon.

And how the hell do you figure an SLI mobo limits your upgrading?

Think those would be much better then the other ones. These ones are like 6$ more Hehe
Definitely! Search through threads on this very subject. AMD 64 CPU's have a 1000MHz hypertransport and typically when overclocking it is the memory that holds overclocking back and causes instability.

When it comes to a case it is really a personal choice. I chose function over form when I selected my Lian Li case. Not that it is not an attractive case. I think it is beautifully simplistic. When it comes to cases there in no better out there IMO and have never regreted putting the extra money in the case. Functions like a sliding motherboard and harddrive tray are priceless if you crack your computer open alot to tweak and add components.

Yeh, it seems the other memory I linked (the 4k) is fully compatable with the Lanarty wheras I cant find out exactly with the other pair, think ima just go with the 4k's.

EDITED for spelling Lol

When it comes to price and quick processing, Newegg is king. You may want to check out other sites when looking for the best bottom line, if you have a little patience. Use pricegrabber.com and search each individual component and it will show you the best price with shipping. It also has reviews of the online retailors, so you can make the best choice. Good luck. Little envious here. Hehe.

Sweet! Thanks so much for your help. You guys (especially you euphoricmix) helped quite a lot. Can't wait to go to the bank and transfer some cash from savings to checkings so I can buy this thing. I am going to check out pricegrabber.com to see if I can get any better deals but I love Newegg so much and I am so used to great service that I may not even bother. I'll update when I finally get the parts and attempt to put this together! I am excited hehe.
